Don't Freak Out





How many spilled their coffee?


Ken Clarke has installed these grotesques above his studio near the north end of Main St. There are 6 or 8 of them.

I think they are great.

Wow, I didn't think Canadians ever got that upset. Here, sure, all the time.

Yes, they are a bit out of sync with the Canadian calm equilibrium we know so well. Perhaps they are like the portrait of Dorian Grey, and all the hidden national angst transfers to these gargoyles instead...

And yes, I see the resemblance between my avatar and that last face on the right.

Well a bad hair day isn't THAT bad. Geez.
Wayne, only you would find these. It looks like a line up of all the blind dates I've had over the years!

Jackie said...

I really like these! What a great find.

Virginia you made me laugh out loud just then!

Ken said...

I like them. Could they possible be portraits of some of our politicians?

Unfortunately that is not my house, it is currently occupied by a real estate company.
